    Ebay:
    found multiple QC issues with octone. Excess paint in the truck/shoulder tabs that makes it hard to lock. Also, excess paint in the airplane nose tab so that is also hard to tab-in. Ball joint on titan master is extremely loose and tends to separate before the head disconnects from robot body.

    Honestly, the excess paint was the only issue I had. Found him to be far superior to the Prime version of the mold. Too much paint seems to be a problem with both of them, as it also prevents Blitzwing's thighs from tabbing properly.

    First - the Ohio Toy and Comic Show is just a couple weeks away!

    Ohio Toy and Comic Show Vol 4 (Dayton/Fairborn)

    (^^^ I will be selling <hopefully> 80%+ of my collection, so if you need stuff, good idea to stop by)


    Second - in Kettering, Walmart on Wilmington Pike has 2-3 characters in movie deluxes, and Twinferno and Triggerhappy. Think 1 Hot Rod. Also had RID Soundwave and a couple others. Still have never seen a Gnaw in a store, but plenty of his case mates.

    Not really a sighting, but if anyone is collecting Combiner Force legion figures, I just bought Starscream for $2 at Brimfield Walmart! I don't know if it's chain wide or a pricing error as the tag didn't say anything. But just a heads up for those of you collecting these or on the fence about some

    As I skipped out on Megs in that mold, I was intensely challenged by the tabs on the hips. I'll count myself lucky though as I didn't seem to experience nearly the issues you guys did with paint. Mine are pretty rock solid, once I got the handle on those hip tabs. It also took me a while to find an arrangement for the tail wings inside Octone's cab before I could get it to close properly, though it did eventually tab up.

    Nah, he's been expected to be $150 from the start.

    Trypticon hasn't been spotted in the US yet.

    I likw the color scheme of planet Cybertron, but i think Hasbro messed up with not only this collectible is $150 and now Trypticon is $150 too? I'll stick with Trypticon.
